Learn how you can drive impact with proposed revisions to the GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance.
Between now and March 14, 2023, the creators of the GHG Protocol are accepting feedback on the accounting standard and how it should be improved. The GHGP has been successful in motivating hundreds of companies and institutions worldwide to invest in renewable energy, but when it comes to its Scope 2 emissions accounting approach, there is a need to refocus the standard on real-world impact.
During this recorded webinar you’ll hear from Faraz Ahmad (Amazon), Adam Reeve (REsurety), and Henry Richardson (WattTime) on a discussion for proposed GHG Protocol updates that drive greater emissions reductions. The session provides an overview of existing electricity accounting approaches, a break down of a new impact-centric approach to carbon accounting that climate advocates worldwide are rallying behind, and a discussion on how sustainability leaders can leverage this approach. There’s also a lengthy interactive Q&A after the presentations.
